Duanesburg Little League Knocks Tobacco Out of the Park!

Written by Theresa Zubretsky on May 18, 2016

Congratulations to Duanesburg Little League for making their entire facility tobacco-free! CDTFC joined them for their opening weekend to celebrate. 





Here’s CDTFC’s Theresa Zubretsky rallying the fans and players to shout out “Play Hard, Breathe Easy.” They needed little encouragement. . .the decibel meter will never be the same.










We got some help from some of the players to pitch “Play Hard, Breathe Easy” t-shirts out to the crowd. Wow! These kids have got some great throwing arms. Thanks, guys!



Albany County Legislature Votes “YES!” to Raise Legal Age for Tobacco Sales to 21!

Written by Theresa Zubretsky on May 10, 2016

Last night in a 24-13 vote, the Albany County Legislature voted to increase the legal minimum age for the sale of tobacco products to 21, following in the footsteps of more than 150 cities in ten states, including New York City, the New York State counties of Chautauqua and Suffolk, and the states of Hawaii and California.

Thank you to the Albany County Legislature for voting “Yes” to a proven community health strategy that will reduce youth smoking.
